Help! I’m Nervous About My Driving Test!

A lot of people, understandably, tell us that their struggling to adjust to the challenges of learning to drive. When you start out there is a lot to learn, from getting familiar with the car that you’re driving, to remembering the Highway Code and learning about the different manoeuvres.

We have wrote about this before but a lot of people are still — understandably — anxious about taking their driving test.

So how do you overcome the nerves that inevitably comes along with your driving test? Here’s our suggestions.

• Practice. Practice. Practice. Go on a few practice tests with your instructor
• Remind yourself that this is just a test, it’s not a reflection on your self-worth
• It may sound a little “woo-woo” but take 5-10 minutes before your test to take some deep breaths an stay calm can help
• The day before your test have all of your documents in one place so you’re not looking for them in the morning – this will cause unnecessary stress.

Safe driving from Britannia!
